The film has had a number of screenings out of competition at the weekend's Venice Film Festival, including the premiere on Sunday 3rd September. Lots of tributes were made to the late director, which can be viewed in the video below.
Where Friedkin also really scores is in its casting. Sutherland’s Queeg is smooth and fascinating to watch on the stand, not at all a reminder of Bogart, but in fact someone we can believe might have been justified, that is at least in the beginning. We can also have some level of sympathy for him. Sutherland is very fine here and perfect casting, but the acting honors ultimately belong to Clarke in one of his best performances. This is a lawyer forced to defend someone he really doesn’t believe, and he socks that inner conflict home before really getting the play’s major punch in before end credits roll. He leaves the audience reeling. Lacy plays it straight as Maryk in a rather unflashy part, compared to some others, but he is authentic and certainly looks the part. As other key players called to the witness stand, Lewis Pullman as Keefer, Jay Duplass as Bird, and Tom Riley as Keith have their moments. Especially poignant is seeing the late Lance Reddick as the Judge in one of his final roles.
